Incubator Week 2!
For our second week of our Incubator series, we’re excited to welcome work from four Edmonton-based designers: Max Amerongen, Chris Camp, Bryan Kulba, and Matthew Satchwill. Together, they’re working on developing design work for TEDxEdmonton, which they will be displaying in the Community Gallery from June 19-23. The guys have also provided us with a more in-depth description of their work:
For the last three years, TEDxEdmonton has commissioned the University of Alberta’s Student Design Association to do the stage design of the annual TED event. Historically, the SDA team was made up of Industrial Design students. This year, however, the team was two ID students — Chris Camp and Max Amerongen — and two Visual Communications Design (VCD) students — Bryan Kulba and Matt Satchwill. This gave the team the opportunity to not only develop the stage design, but work on the event’s visual identity.
The success of this project lies in the diversity of skills each team member possesses and a truly collaborative atmosphere. The ideas and concepts would come from the perspective and training of one person, but elevated further through the input of the collaborators. Ideas went from sketches to models, to more sketches and back to models, which refined the concept and created an incredible unity between the event branding and final stage design.
We’ll have images from the show and a video interview with the artists up soon. In the meantime, read on for bios of all the artists…
